Whoops! Macy's Ad Congratulates Wrong Team

Whoops! Macy's Ad Congratulates Wrong Team

Ad in Monday's Miami Herald newspaper congratulates Miami Heat for winning NBA finals.

Published June 14, 2011

Pity the person at Macy's who placed a full-page ad in Monday's Miami Herald paper congratulating the Miami Heat for winning the NBA championship.

The ad showed photos of Heat championship T-shirts and hats from Macy's that read "Heat 2011 NBA Finals Champions" and the Heat's logo on a hat with the words "NBA Champions."

To make matters worse, the ad ran under a story about the Heat's loss.

A correction was issued and a Macy's spokeswoman called the ad an unfortunate error.

In case you missed it, the Dallas Mavericks beat the Heat 105-95 on Sunday in Miami.
